Hope this could be useful.....love the Spire, but always getting that “boomy” effect from the room acoustics. Half way up the stairway on the left seems to be best for keeping it under control 🤪. But we move it all over the room looking for a solution. Note that we are playing thru a PA. I had read an article about room acoustics and using sound deadening panels, covering the windows and so on.
Well, while shaking my head at the possibility of ever being able to understand what sound engineers are talking about I must have caused two brain cells to collide and make a spark.
A 2’ square of bubble wrap and a couple pieces of tape later....we fashioned a little igloo and placed the spire inside with the mic right at the entrance. The room pretty much went away. Have not tried different locations or materials, but it’s coming.
If any of this works for you please send me a Taylor 814 (prefer a shiny new one if you don’t mind) in exchange for the technology licensing.
Please let me know if you try this and if it worked for you.

I got together with a friend this last weekend; he and I played a duo during the 70s. He is an outstanding keyboard player. I set up my Spire Studio just to have a memory of our get-together. He was impressed with it and ordered his own!

Even though we will be about 1,300 miles apart when I get back home, we may still be able to work on some music projects together by sending these Spire Studio files back and forth - I'm looking forward to it!

Moving blankets work well and are under $10 each .. Then look for some "Tarp Clips" that attach to the blanket and then use 3M plastic hooks, So it is super easy to take them down... I use these to cover my windows in my room.

I mentioned earlier that I had recorded a few songs when my keyboard playing friend and I got together this past weekend. We didn't set up mics, so I wasn't expecting much... I just plopped the Spire Studio on the table and we played. Today, I had some time, and recorded another (nylon) guitar track and a vocal track. In our motorhome. Certainly not the best situation for recording, but my wife was out running errands, so there was some "quiet time." Well, except for the occasional motorhome or diesel pickup driving by, or the air conditioner turning on. It is warm today in the Valley of the Sun - I did turn the a/c off long enough to use the onboard condenser mic for a track. Whew!



The recording wasn't originally planned, I just wanted a reminder of getting together.
